COURSE 0970      EARTH/SPACE/PHYSICS (ESP)

Grade Level: 9th

Required science course for graduation. This course provides an intense introduction to the four branches of Earth Science, geology, meteorology, astronomy, and oceanography. Emphasis will be placed on rock and mineral identification, preserving non-renewable resources, earthquake activity, planetary observations, and climate trends.

COURSE 0975       BIOLOGY

Grade Level: 10th

Biology is a class that deals with the study of living things. Students will study the cell and its makeup, plants, animals and protists, human body and environmental issues that affect living things. Students will do various outside of class projects such as leaf identification, insect collection, and specimens brought for a special day like Microscopic Day. In class labs will include microscope use, bacterial growth and dissection of the earthworms, starfish, and bullfrog.

COURSE 1070       INTRODUCTION TO CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS (ICP)

 Prerequisite: Integrated Science and Biology

Chemistry and physics are sciences that deal with the study of the non-living factors that affectour everyday lives. It is an in-depth introduction to both chemistry and physics which will expose the students to the fundamentals of the two sciences and prepare them for the CATS testing. Examples of topics that will be emphasized are chemical reactions, electricity, wave motion, the periodic chart of the elements and environmental issues. Proper lab procedure and the correct usage of lab equipment will be stressed.

COURSE 1170       CHEMISTRY

Grade Level: 11, 12

 Prerequisites: Algebra I, Biology and Integrated Science

Chemistry is an advanced study of atomic structure, periodic relationships, and chemical reactions. This course develops an in-depth understanding of chemical processes and enhances math processing and problem solving skills. There will be eight to ten lab periods ranging from metal reactivity to gas pressure evaluation.

COURSE 1176      FORENSICS

Fourth year science class elective

COURSE 1270      AP CHEMISTRY II

Grade Level: 12

Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry, Biology,Integrated Science, and Chemistry

Advanced Placement Chemistry for seniors who wish to pursue careers in the area of science and chemistry or health professions. Students may test at the end of the year in order to possibly  skip college entry level course in chemistry.

COURSE 1175      ANATOMY PHYSIOLOGY

 Grade Level: 12

Anatomy Physiology deals with the study of the human body parts and how they work. This course should be considered an elective (fourth) science This course enables students to understand just how amazing our human body really is. Examples of topics studied will be the ten body systems, human reproduction, and various issues that will affect our body. Lab procedures of blood testing, pH levels, cat dissection, and shampoo testing are just examples of labs that will be done.
